Alumna Noreen Evans, '81, former California State Senator, gave the keynote address to 14 new members of the McGeorge chapter of the Order of the Coif at the annual induction luncheon on May 19, 2017.
Day Division valedictorian Jessica Gosney and Evening Division valedictorian Ian McGlone were among the Class of 2017 academic stars welcomed into the honor society. Professor Leslie Gielow Jacobs, president of the McGeorge chapter of the Order of the Coif and director of the Capital Center for Law & Policy, welcomed keynote speaker Evans and inducted the new members.
Many alumni Coif members attended the luncheon, which is open each year to all alumni who are members of the organization that traces its roots to medieval England. It was the 35th annual Order of the Coif Congratulatory Luncheon for McGeorge, which holds the 59th chapter in the 82-law school honorary society. Other schools that boast chapters in the organization include Yale, Emory, Stanford and the University of Michigan. New graduates must have finished in the top 10 percent of their classes to qualify for election to membership.
